Extreme precision, superb action, and stunning aesthetics are just some of the features you’ll get in a custom Mako from Matthew Lerch. This former watchmaker puts in the time to refine every aspect of his work to craft these mind-numbing pieces of art that perform as good as they look.
Every day we get some of the best custom and mid-tech knives from the greatest knife designers delivered straight to our door. As you can imagine, it’s pretty much Christmas year-round over here at KnifeCenter. This week we’re showing off tactical knives that can only be described as works of art, including new Microtech Socom Elites and a Liong Mah Warrior 2 V2 flipper. Coming soon we’ll have Tac Butchers and Mini Cleavers from ADV, more Spectras and the Mini Decepticon from CKF, and new Microtech Limited Edition Cypher MK7s. Talk about one heck of a wish list!
This GTC Commando flipper is the epitome of tactical art featuring a stunning integral Zircu-Ti handle. This eye-catching material wraps around the spine of the knife and even folds over to form the pocket clip, all in a single piece! If you are brave enough to carry the Commando, a CPM-154 blade and sturdy frame lock ensure this knife is more than just a pretty face.
Let’s ring in the upcoming holiday (and consequent three-day weekend) with another batch of custom and mid-tech knives. We’re currently sitting pretty over at this year’s USN Custom Knife Show so that we can showcase even more custom pieces next week. Don’t forget – KnifeCenter offers the best custom and mid-tech knives on the internet. Next time you need a custom fix, check here first!
We’ve got a handful of gorgeous new Gavkos in stock, and these sharky frame locks deserve a look. The titanium handles are milled with a rough jigged pattern that continues on to the spine of the blade, providing extra grip and a unique look to each piece. Built by hand to extremely high tolerances, these knives feature Nitro-V steel, which is becoming a fast favorite in the custom knifemaking community.
It’s always a good day when we get to handle new knives from Olamic Cutlery. They continue to raise the bar when it comes to mid-tech folding knives and fixed blades, and the variety of Damascus steel and premium handle materials make this collection truly one-of-a-kind. Check out our review of the new Busker and Wayfarer folding knives and the Voykar HT and Kovda fixed blades!
Another week, another fresh batch of custom and mid-tech knives. This time we’ve got two production knife features, so check out the list below to find your next EDC or safe queen.
Geoff has knocked another one out of the park with the Catalyst from Arcform Knives. This mid-tech WE Knife variant of Geoff’s impressive custom build is simply superb with amazingly crisp, satisfying flipping action and ergonomics that promote all day hard use. Continue Reading
KnifeCenter’s got a great batch of new custom knives from Bill Koenig, Tim Britton, Justin Gingrich, and more. If you’ve been looking to add to your EDC rotation or knife collection, we have a feeling you’ll be filling up your cart with at least one of these beauties.
Do yourself a favor and add a Koenig Arius to your collection right now while we have them in stock. This is one of our favorite custom knives. It’s precision machined with amazing action and stellar ergonomics, making it a do-it-all knife that will become a go-to in your EDC rotation straight away.
New month, new customs! This week we’re showing off some incredible designs from Mikkel Willumsen, Kansei Matsuno, Darrel Ralph, and more. You’ll even find a teaser for some tactical flippers from HEAdesigns that we’re dropping today.
Kansei Matsuno’s knives are a perfect blend of form, function, and meticulous Japanese quality that you can carry with you at all times. This might be our favorite Kansei design to date, and it’s available in either friction folding or liner locking variants.
We get new custom and mid-tech knives in throughout the week, meaning Knifecenter sees the best knives on the market every. single. day. Man, there are just some days where you have to sit back and realize you get to handle knives like this for a living. Now that you’re all super jealous, check out our offerings below!
Jake’s Ps35 Axe is a versatile tactical and camp tomahawk with distinct features that allow it to excel at both. The hammer is ideal for driving in tent poles or wedges for snares. The fully enclosed Micarta handle is sealed to prevent electrical shock if you accidentally hit a live wire while using the Ps35 as a breaching tool.
We’re back from the 2018 East Coast Custom Knife Show, and we scored some pretty exceptional pieces. Check out the ones we featured on our Custom Newsletter – and don’t forget to sign up so you can see new ECCKS models, some limited edition pieces from RMJ Tactical, and a beautiful folder from Les Voorhies we’ll be showcasing soon! KnifeCenter is the original and largest online catalog of cutlery, and that includes the best and newest custom knives from some of the most well known and idolized knifemakers in the world.
Few knives we saw at the show are more recognizable than the new SBK/F Folder from Borka Blades. This folding knife is styled after Sebastijan Berenji’s signature fixed blade and is the same size as the Mini Stitch, which makes it perfect for both everyday carry and tactical applications.
Anyone familiar with Michael Raymond knows the extreme precision and attention to detail that go into each of his knives – and this Galaxis model is no exception. It features a beautiful jigged titanium frame and pocket clip, as well as one of the smoothest and most precise openings on the market. Michael Raymond’s knives are extremely difficult to come by (this is the only one we’ve ever had), so if you’re a fan you better act fast!
Jeremy Horton is known in the industry for his signature blade grind and Survival Shorty fixed blade. Coming in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, each SS model is a perfect expression of Jeremy’s no-nonsense style and his elite skill behind a grinding wheel.
It’s like Shark Week all year round in the Gavko Knife Shop as Michal’s always discovering and producing new Shark models. The Nurse and the Snubnose Shrunk Trasher are two of his newest creations and both are beautiful examples of the truly unique style that sets Gavko Knives apart from all the rest. We’ve already sold the Snubnose, but the Nurse flipper (pictured) is still up for grabs!
The Bloodshark, designed by Tracker Dan and manufactured by John Gray, is built for discreet concealed carry and real world combat. We were lucky enough to get our hands on one flipper from John at the show, and it’s an incredible knife with a litany of distinct tactical features and some seriously sick flipping action.
Brad Zinker Knives brings a whole new dimension to the EDC game, redefining how easily knives can be carried. When they are this thin, they absolutely disappear in the pocket. A bonus of this slim design is that some of these compact folders can also double as a really cool money clip.
Kurt Merriken is a new maker for us, and we’re very excited to be able to showcase a couple of his knives. This full-time firefighter from Florida spends much of his free time grinding away, specifically on unusually large frame lock folders. We picked up two very different yet equally impressive pieces from Kurt at the show: one elegant full dress dagger with a 4” blade and a behemoth cleaver style knife that could likely break down a whole chicken in a matter of seconds.
What pieces have you pumped? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to share this blog with your friends who appreciate a custom masterpiece. If you’re looking to buy a knife from the show before they’re snatched up, check out our collection of all ECCKS custom knives. Don’t forget to let us know what you’d like to see us post next!
